"90% isn't an unreasonable number, but of course take it as +/- 5% :-)"
As always, you have absolutely NOTHING to support your claims...
Must be with that power saving slide you can't seem to find :-)
In a tablet, Nvidia believes the beefier 2W version of Logan will be more powerful than the PS3 or the GeForce 8800 GTX — in the neighborhood of 400 GFLOPS. Granted, these are both a few years out of date, but we’re clearly into the realm of desktop-level graphics. These raw numbers put the mobile Kepler GPU at around 5.2x the power of the PowerVR SGX 554MP4 in the most recent iPad.
"Silvermont has A15 and Krait checkmated 10 ways to Sunday"
Agree. ARM 32-bit ISA is limited
"Intel will have the best CPU,"
How will the INtel CPU compare to NVidia's Project Denver ??
Or rather you have absolutely NO idea !!!!
"28nm Tegra 5 Logan (as demoed) released early 2014"
"20nm (or 28nm if 20nm scarce) Tegra 6 Parker released late 2014"
NVidia Advertised as finfet 2015
"Logan is worth releasing as is on 28nm"
Been in house for awhile, so good chance.
"de-facto SoC gpu leader"
"A15 will not suddenly become a slow mobile processor in 2014"
Agree, and if go to 20nm, it'll get a boost
"In light of the unexpected severe Intel and Apple competition "
NVidia has been building an infrastructure that come together with its own 64-bit CPU.
Every device will have a version of it.
" It's a tentative first step for Intel into the mW world of embedded processors"
Do you know of any plans to offer as a HardIP core for their FPGA customers ?
"NV's management that they paly a FLEXIBLE game in a highly competitive landscape."
Flexible is good, but some of the course corrections could come from poor estimation too.
But this is a fast mkt and will agree NVidia has a better view after jumping in...
"Over the past 2 years they moved up some projects while delaying others,"
Tegra 4 was delayed... missed many mkt windows
Grey was moved up 6 months... after being delayed 2 yrs...
"I personally see no need to be fixated in a name (like Stark) or rigid timetable."
Then why would any company post a timetable at all...
What if Parker, or Maxwell disappears from the next timetable...
" the important message is that NV should have a 65-bit cpu paired with Kepler sometime in 2014."
Certainly hope so !!!! All NVidia's future products will have a 64-bit CPU core.
So the sooner it arrives, the sooner everything else at NVidia gets going...
GRID, servers, labtops, HPC, sw support... all hinging on their own 64-bit CPU...
It's why I'm a long...see a strategy that's been building for years...
"Off to my morning run in Central Park"
Totally dig on NYC !!!!!
Could spend a lifetime attempting to eat at every dive...
OK, if I recall, it was said follow-on to Logan was Denver. So the conjecture is if there is a new SOC between Logan and Parker, it will be the long lost Stark SOC that Jensen originally mentioned as being the first SOC to use Denver.
After reading the article again, all he said is the follow-on to Logan... which still could be Parker in 2015...
The author has made some giant leaps of faith based on rumor and pure hope...
everything is based on "if"
So... "if" TSMC magically accelerates its 16nm finfet production to 2014... "if"
"Could NVIDIA be set for success with 64-bit Tegra 6 next year?"
TSMC 16nm finfet will be in 2015...
"mars' position is it's always "just wait." Doesn't matter if it's the product mix or the process, but whatever the market needs it's just around the next corner with Intel!"
On the INtel board, it's been a constant stream of:
"Intel is coming out with something next year,
only this time around the competition is thru"
hear it year after year after year...
but he's right in that INtel will have many:
"THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK" moments...
They do have their fabs to leverage and one shouldn't be complacent about it...
" NVDA is lining up all the pieces "
That's what I see too...
Gonna come together when NVidia has its own CPU...
